August 25, 2018 (Washington, D.C.) -- The Republican Jewish Coalition notes with sadness the passing of an American hero, Senator John McCain.
Republican Jewish Coalition Chairman Senator Norm Coleman said:
Senator John McCain was a patriot and a fighter. He fought for his country in war and in peace with a dedication that was awe-inspiring. It was an honor for me to serve with him in the U.S. Senate, where he was a leader on defense and security issues. His record of service to our country is a testament to a great man. We are diminished by his passing.
Republican Jewish Coalition Executive Director Matt Brooks said:
We are truly saddened by the passing of Senator John McCain. He was a great friend of Israel and the Republican Jewish Coalition. A man of independent spirit and tremendous love of country, he forged his own path in a life of service and accomplishment. May his memory be a blessing.
